I see lots of somewhat similar requests, but here is what would help me immensely.
In the "Needs Reboot" we can currently filter simply by yes or no.
Right now I have to hover over the Yes to see if it's one of 2 things I typically see:
Updating core OS Files or Windows Updates asked for a reboot (or sometimes both)
With programs like MS Edge, Symantec, Firefox, Chrome and other frequent updating programs, almost every device in inventory is flagged to reboot daily for core OS files. While they are important at some point, I don't usually focus on them daily.
I do focus on the Windows Updates ones. I would like one of 3 things to happen:
1) The "Pin" in the Needs Reboots header instead of sorting by yes or no, include the option to pick the specific reasons within.
2) In either the Search or Filter boxes, let me type "Windows Updates" and have it search within the Reboot Needed messages
3) Split the Needs Reboot Column (or add individual addable columns) one for Needs Reboot (WU) and Needs Reboot (Core)
I saw the posts on collections and sql reports, and I'll try them as a temporary solution, but with a ton of Active Directory OUs and collections, and being able to manually reboot different sections at different times, I really need it as a live tool directly from the various collections screens.
